Faux-Leather Charging Station
While I was scrubbing house this weekend, inspiration for which product I would highlight in today’s blog came to me out of the blue, when I came face to face with my faux-leather charging station. There was a time when the two-and-a-half-foot section of counter between the kitchen sink and wall was largely eaten up by our two tangled cell phone charger cords. Not only did it look like a mess, but I’d also have to constantly mop up water that would somehow find it’s way out of the sink and threaten to soak both the cords and phones. As you can probably imagine, that situation got old fast, and it didn’t take long for me to bring home a charging station.
The charging station has 3 pods that can accommodate 3 or 4 devices (depending on their sizes), as well as a hidden back compartment that holds a mini power strip (to plug chargers into) and stashes charger cords out of sight. Once you have it set up, the only visible cord is the power strip’s — but if you keep the charging station nice and close to an outlet, even that one isn’t too noticeable.
Since I was the one insisting that we get a charging station, I thought the decent thing to do would be to at least let my husband pick the color, since he was going to be using it too. What can I say, the man has an eye — he chose black, which looks pretty darn sleek on the countertop. It’s been about a month now, and we both love the station — it makes us look and feel deceptively organized, and has returned a chunk of premium counter space to our small kitchen. Oh, and before I forget: the fact that charging station is faux leather has actually been a bonus — I’ve wiped it down with a damp cloth, with no harm done.
